Probably not, although it could lead to other problems which would cause your car not to start.

no the higher milage or higher rpms can cause the head bolts to stretch which would cause it to blow

It could be that your head gasket is shot. It may cause your antifreeze to leak, and your engine will overheat.

Sure it will start with a blown head gasket. But, if you continue to run this engine with a blown head gasket you will destroy the engine.

Head gasket failing The most common cause is a blown head gasket. Stop driving the car as severe engine damage will occur.

probably a blown head gasket if the oil looks milky or has bubbles in it

I blown head gasket can cause an engine miss which one cause a rough idle.

Engine overheated, head was warped, cracked, or not trued or replaced, head bolts were torqued out of sequence or too loose or too tight.

A blow to the head would cause swelling.

Start with a compression test. Head gaskets fail when an engine overheats and that's a common cause of sudden engine failure. It doesn't always mean that the engine has to have overheated RECENTLY; sometimes it has to be run for a while.

Engine Overheating is the major cause.

Start with removing the cylinder head to determine the cause of no compression. If it is a valve problem, have the head rebuilt. If it is a piston or piston ring problem, remove the engine for rebuilding or replacement.

Most likely a failed head gasket or a cracked or warped head. Less likely but possible is a crack in the block.

first suggestion would be the head gasket which Montana's are notorious for having problems with, followed closely by a crack in your cylinder head or engine block

Would seem that of the four heater plugs fitted to this engine one or more have failed. They are located in the cylinder head and are joined by a single wire . they cost between £6 and £12 each dependant on engine . hope this helps

I would have your computer recalibrated and find the source of why it got messed up in the first place. Also a slipped timing belt and bad head gasket will also cause that very same problem. I race these little cars so i have a pretty good idea what would cause allot of problems with them. If the check engine light stays off during normal driving i would definatly look into the engine timing and or head gaskets.

Engine coolant leaking into cylinder. Possible bad head gasket.

Depending on the location of the blowout or crack, it could seep water into the oil, or oil into the water. In some cases, the blown head gasket could seep water into the exhaust manifold, which will cause steam or water to come out of the tailpipe. If the blowout or crack is in one of the cylinders, you will loose compression and cause your engine not to start.

If it was a head gasket then the compresion would be low in the affected cylinders low compresion as a result of wear wil make the car hard to start and overheating can also lead to electrical problems, Besides blowing a head gasket, overheating can also cause a cylinder head ro crack. Low compression and engine not starting or hard to start are symptoms. As mentioned above, do not discard the possibility of electrical problems due to overheating. However, the prime suspects are blown head gasket and/or cracked cylinder head.
